Made In Germany (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 16.99
A trio of early 70s LPs from Klaus Weiss & Niagara – in a 3CD set! First up is the 1971 self-titled debut – a pretty astonishing set of heavy, hypnotic drums and percussion. It features just 2 long jams, "Sangandongo" and "Malanga" and it's pretty much an all ... read more CD

Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), Mid 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
A trio of rare records from Janko Nilovic – all packaged together in one box set! First up is Pop Impressions – hardly pop at all – save, perhaps, for the fact that it's been sampled by a number of hip hoppers over the years – because the set's one of the greatest ever from ...

Nimbus CollectiveLive In Lotus Land ... CD
Nimbus, 1987. New Copy 2CDs ... $9.99
A lost session of spiritual jazz – recorded in LA in the latter half of the 80s, but with a soaring, righteous vibe that's right up there with the 70s scene! The group here is incredible – an all-star array of the best talents working for Nimbus Records – Nate Morgan on piano, ... read more CD

Nineteenth WholeSmilin' ... CD
Eastbound/Westbound (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
One of the sweetest little jazz funk albums of the early 70s – and a masterful blend of vibes, guitar, and organ from this legendary Indianapolis combo! The group are probably best known for their backing work behind Grant Green on some of his funky Blue Note sides – or for vibes ... read more CD

Novi SingersNovi In Wonderland ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the earliest records by the legendary Novi Singers – and a rare MPS set that exposed the group to a larger European audience! Novi hail from Poland, but have a name that's an condensation of the English phrase "new original vocal instruments" – a great summation of the ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Adam O'FarrillStranger Days ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Trumpeter Adam O'Farrill's debut as a leader, and it's a strong one! Adam is the son of Cuban jazz piano great Arturo O'Farrill, but on Stranger Days, he's pretty firmly establishing his own identity in contemporary post-bop – keeping up the family tradition as a top notch player, rather than ... read more CD

Shunzoh OhnoSomething's Coming ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
An aggressive bit of funky fusion – a set that matches the talents of Japanese trumpeter Shunzoh Ohno with some hip American grooves from Reggie Lucas on guitar, Cedric Lawson on keyboards, Don Pate on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums! The sound is very full-on – in a mid 70s Miles Davis ... read more CD

Yuji OhnoProof Of The Man (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $28.99
Sweet funky sounds from Japanese keyboardist/arranger Yuji Ohno – one of his lesser-known film scores from the 70s, but also one of his best! The record's got a bit of a cop/crime vibe overall – with lots of warm electric touches, of the sort you might find on an American thriller of ... read more CD

Sy OliverDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Yes Indeed ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Trumpeter Sy Oliver was a big talent in the swing generation – where his sharpness and focus almost paved the way for later leaders and arrangers like Quincy Jones or Neal Hefti – and here, he brings that old school mode into sharper focus in a smaller ensemble – working with a ... read more CD

✨✧ Shunsuke UminoMirage (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An album that's every bit as cool and classic as its cover – a really kicking organ/tenor set, and one with a voice that's all its own! Drummer Shunsuke Umino heads up the group, and also wrote a number of the tracks – and he's got an approach that's not content to simply rehash old ... read more CD

One For AllThird Decade ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Rock-solid work from One For All – a group whose individual players are already at the top of their scene, and perform together here at a level that's even greater than the sum of their parts! These guys have been working together for over 20 years – hence the album's title – yet ... read more CD

Oneness Of JujuSpace Jungle Luv (UK pressing) ... CD
Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
A fantastic record from one of the greatest underground jazz groups of the 70s! Oneness of Juju are perhaps best known for the heavy funk of their first album, African Rhythms, but we're actually partial to this second album – a warmly spiritual batch of soul jazz tracks, filled with life, ...

✨✧ Frankie Ortega & Sy Oliver77 Sunset Strip & Other Selections ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest records ever from pianist Frankie Ortega – a set that has his usual trio backed by a much bigger group – which makes the music pack a lot more punch than usual! Sy Oliver put the band together, and handles the arrangements – which leaves Frankie's piano out ... read more CD

✨✧ Tony OrtegaJazz for Young Moderns ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1958/1959. New Copy ... $8.99
Incredible early work from Anthony Ortega – and darn hard to find in any format! Ortega is one of the great unsung modernists of the 50s – and although this set has an outward appearance that makes it look like other Bethlehem sides of the time, Ortega's icy reed work and sharp talent ... read more CD

Svart (Finland), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $18.99
A hip quartet of jazz performances – all recorded for Finnish radio in the 70s – presented here with beautiful sound as a stunning look at the under-tapped talent in that scene at the time! First up is a 19 minute track titled "Lydian Feeling" – performed by a quartet ... read more CD

✨✧ Harold OusleyHarold Ousley – Tenor Sax ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $8.99
A legendary album from this tenor genius from Chicago – a hell of a player who emerged in the same generation as Clifford Jordan, John Gilmore, Eddie Harris, and Johnny Griffin – yet never fully got his due! The album's easily one of the most sharp-edged for the Bethlehem label – ... read more CD

Frank OwensBrown 'N Serve ... CD
Encounter/Essential, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A supremely excellent lost bit of mellow funk, and one of the few rare releases on the Encounter label – which was sort of a doper, more soulful version of CTI! Frank Owens plays organ and keyboards, and the group includes Bernard Purdie lending his trademark soul jazz drums (a very welcome ... read more CD

P TrioEmbalo ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
A beautiful bit of lost bossa jazz from 60s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by the P Trio, an enigmatic group recording in Belo Horizonte – hardly the same center of bossa nova as the beaches in Rio! The session's got a spare and lively feel – similar to work at the time ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

Marty PaichBroadway Bit ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
Marty Paich takes on a host of Broadway tunes from the 50s – but as always with his best work, the result is something quite far from its roots – an amazing batch of jazzy instrumentals that owes very little to the original conception of the tunes! Paich's got an incredible ear for ... read more CD
